Card swap



This is a card swap I did for Alex's card swap. It's been awhile since I've done a regular card swap. It will be good to get some new samples. I used the Doodle That stamp set for this. I brayered cardstock vellum with Tempting Turquoise ink. I let that dry(you can speed up the process with a heat gun). The classic ink does not dry instantly on cardstock vellum. Then I stamped with Versamark onto the brayered vellum and embossed with black embossing powder. Be sure to use your embossing buddy if you try this because that powder likes to cling where it's not supposed to. Then I cut out the flowers(3 of them per card) and colored in portions of it with my Tempting Turquoise marker. I put a crystal brad through the center and attached it the celery cardstock base with mini glue dots. The celery piece is stamped with the floral backgound and paper pierced around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by!
